Amateur theologians

Posted · Add Comment

The debate over the which Syrian refugees (if any) and how many of them to bring to the United States has brought out a cadre of amateur theologians—many of whom darken the doorway of a house of worship only for weddings and funerals—quick to tell us exactly WWJD when it comes to public policy. The […]

The Syrian Refugees

Posted · 1 Comment

In the wake of last week’s terrorist attacks in Paris that left more than 100 dead, President Obama has decided that it is a good time to reemphasize his plan to bring 200,000 Syrian refugees to America over the next two years. This despite the fact that at least one of the Paris terrorists entered […]

Clinton’s Email Security

After months of requests, former Secretary of State, and current Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton finally turned over her infamous personal email server to the FBI. But the real news today is that Clinton’s email security was a joke. We’re safe in assuming that the Russians, Chinese and any other half-way interested party (but not Congress […]

Chuck Schumer is right on the Iran Deal

As a general rule, it’s hard to go wrong taking the opposite position of New York Sen. Chuck Schumer on just about any subject of public import. Gun-control, healthcare, government spending, whatever, find out which side Schumer is on and choose the other. Which brings us to eight words I never thought I’d say or […]

Obama’s bad deal

Posted · Add Comment

President Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and just about every other administration official repeatedly said over the course of the P5+1 negotiations with Iran over its nuclear program that “no deal is better than a bad deal.” That was a lie. Today, President Obama proudly announced that he’d made a deal with Iran that […]

First Lady Michelle Obama famously held up a piece of paper with the #BringBackOurGirls hashtag after the Islamic terrorists of Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 girls for use as sex […]

'Smart' people are dumb

I can’t begin to describe the level of stupid in this: Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, hoped that a team of UN investigators — many of whom, presumably, have a longstanding relationship with Iranian leaders — could write a report that would convince Iran to abandon its ally at the behest […]

Obama's Animal House Moment

I’m not sure I could have come up with a solution to Syria. I’m also pretty sure I couldn’t have done a worse job than President Obama. Last year, with his customary self-importance, President Obama laid down his famous red line: If Bashir Assad used chemical weapons, there would be serious repercussions. This stance was […]

Lies Obama told me

At his press conference last week, President Obama defended the “honor” of his U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice by challenging Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kelly Ayotte that if they were angry that Rice was sent on five Sunday shows to peddle a demonstrable lie their beef was with him and not the ambassador. Shorter […]

Has Obama watched ‘A Few Good Men?’

The latest news on the Benghazi scandal and cover-up broke last week when Fox News reported that CIA operators at the annex a few short blocks from the U.S. consulate had been ordered multiple times to “stand down” and not assist the Americans under attack. In the first days after the attack, attention focused on […]
